Lexus LFA: Inside the home of the beastEven one of the best cars in the world needs a service now and then. XCAR took a peek inside at what might be the greatest car on the road right now.
[MUSIC] produced, it's a beautiful car. It's a full carbon Chasse. With a v10 engine. 175 horse powers. Over 500 newton meter torque. It's a super sports car so in 3.5 and load correctly it's on 100 kilometers and hour, or 60 miles per hour. For Lexus it's. Show what the brand is capable of doing. They have limited the car to 500. They have used carbon fiber technology to produce the car. They have done a beautiful [INAUDIBLE] engine. And it's a car which is very exclusive. It's not something you would see every day. It's not something that you should see every day. It's something special that goes with the brand of Lexus. It's a special engine in the sense that it's built for this car, designed for this car. It's not see, you don't see this in any other car as in the LFA. If you buy an LFA you also need to go and. For surface, and the Europe Lexus Europe has decided to, to go for Fiorza Motorsports. It's a high tech facility in Cologne, in Germany, where these cars are serviced. So the customer who runs an LFA and who needs it serviced, the LFA will be brought here to TNG. The customer can have a look at it. Is, is able to see the work. In the past, former [INAUDIBLE] cars were designed and built. And today it's the home of the world endurance champion so yes you have a facility here which is high tech and which fits very well to this kind of car. We can completely rebuild the car if necessary. We can repair the mono clock but until today we haven't we had these kinds of cases before. So as there are not so many the customer with like the lva are very, very careful with it. Of course, it's a car, which. If you look at the design, it's a bit of timeless design. It's, fits still, in today's supercar environment. And you see it, here and there, popping up. It even was on Top Gear and somebody called it the best car ever driven. So, yes. There is, there is an bit of a myth around and that's good. Of course, the car, I think, it's a beautiful one. And,. You know, if you look at it, it's still awesome. And it's easy car to fall in love with. I hope more will come, because as I say, it's gives a statement to the brand, it's gives a statement to the quality that Lexus is able to do to produce and to deliver. But I think on the longer term, we will see from Toyota, Lexus, and others. Supercar. [MUSIC] [NOISE] The next super car should be a Lexus, should be a hybrid car. Technology goes in the direction, we have also new technology coming and. If you see a competitor's, you try to ring this in your super car, and it's good to do, and I think, and I would not expect difference from Lexus and or Toyota. [MUSIC] [NOISE]
